Description: De WAAGHALS (= The Dare-devil) is an attractive vegetarian restaurant. The atmosphere is informal, but the food is refined and creative. Organic ingredients are used as much as possible. Each month a dish focuses on a different country. Our menu changes twice a month. There is a large selection of drinks available, from various sorts of tea and fruit juices to different kinds of beer (including locally brewed ones) and organic wines. The interior is very comfortable and on nice summer evenings you can dine outside. De WAAGHALS is very popular with a growing number of non-vegetarians. It is advisable to book in advance

I just had dinner in this amazing vegetarian restaurant. Coming from New York, one tends to a little jaded with exciting and new restaurants but this one absolutely makes the cut. The soup to the lentil curry to the dessert were all spectacular. The fact it was a nice fall evening and an intimate setting makes it a even more nicer package. I never felt like I was eating in a vegetarian restaurant. The combinations of sweet and sour was exciting in my main course. The Leek soup was so homely and delicious! Who would have thought? Leek soup! I was fortunate to be sitting next to the kitchen and was able to watch Chef Eva work her magic!
Would highly recommend!

Before jetting to Amsterdam, we had clocked Waaghals as a restaurant to visit. We didn't have a reservation, there were few seats to choose from and liked the casual and warm ambience of the restaurant. We both had the three course dinner for 30€, plus caraf of red, which supplemented the food well.
Bell peppers and pumpkin soup for starters were delicious, as were the main courses; baked potato with accompanying vegetables and my companions fried spätzle were exquisitely tasty.
The ingredients were so lovingly cooked and seasoned, that you couldn't imagine tasting vegetarian food as nice as this.
Vanilla Black in London comes to mind, but they're more on the posh side, whereas Waaghals approach is more "homely" yet tasting like fine cuisine.
If you want great vegetarian food in Amsterdam, you'd be nuts to miss Waaghals.

I've been a vegetarian for 44 years.. since birth..
However, eating vegetarian food is often a chor or second rate (in the view of most meat eaters)..
This place however, is sublime.
A fantastic menu with the right amount of options. They have the amount of choice exactly right..
We had a great view of the kitchen, so we could see how each course was expertly prepared. A real treat to watch.

And the food...... the food was sublime.

The waiting staff and the chef made us feel incredibly welcome and looked after..

The size of the premises is small simply decorated, but just right.

My wife managed to get away with half of the recipes..

Thank you Waaghals, for a wonderful meal and a great atmosphere.
